Erasmus+ Training from beyond Europe (ICM)
Queen Mary welcomes staff for training within the framework of an Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Programme (ICM) inter-institutional agreement signed with a partner institution in one of the participating Partner Countries beyond Europe.
No grants remain for Erasmus+ ICM incoming staff from partner institutions in countries beyond Europe (ICM).
Nevertheless, we are pleased to welcome self-funded colleagues from partner institutions beyond Europe for participation in a Queen Mary Staff Training Week. Such a visit aims to provide mutual transfer of knowledge and good practice, learning from shared experience, job shadowing, observation, acquiring practical skills and discovering new ideas for teaching and learning.
